Jerry Folk has been showing us a different side of his production chops with his past few releases, this one being my favorite of the bunch. “Stanley” has really endearing chord progressions coupled with airy & elegant vocal stabs — making for a really nice tune. It’s future bass without being so in your face about it, if that makes sense. Sometimes soulful sometimes deep, this one changes as it breathes.

Home boys TastyTreat and home girl Tribes have come together for one massive future jam. “Found Someone” is a vibey little number with some of the coolest synth work I’ve heard in a downtempo piece in some time. The drops undulate in waves and seem to carry you weightlessly through the composition. Tribes’ vocals suit the sound greatly; definitely keen to hear more from her. This one comes as the first of a three part EP. Don’t sleep on TastyTreat.
Racking in millions of soundcloud plays and riding high on support from Porter Robinson and Flume – Swedish phenom Kasbo wraps up 2015 with his last original of the year “World Away”, just released on Odesza’s new imprint Foreign Family Collective. This cinematic production embodies the young artist’s sound: soulful, evocative, and melody-rich – moving from bass-heavy, synth-fueled sequences to airy atmospheres, all with raw energy that you can feel. Kasbo also joins Odesza on tour this month, with a virtually sold-out schedule across North America.
Los Angeles – catch Kasbo on Halloween performing @ HARD Day of The Dead

No one’s career has — arguably — progressed more rapidly in 2015 that Alison Wonderland. This Aussie future bass prodigy has been releasing track after track, strolling through festival after festival just dropping heat on everyones face. Miss Alison came out of left field with a Hodgy Beats collaboration for her remix of Hermitude. The Odd Future rapper adds that x-factor to the gripping remix that’s sure to rock some speakers near you.
The homie Prince Fox has a super unique style, and always manages to impress. His first original tune, “Wait Until Tomorrow,” was a cheeky little indie-dance/house number, and he’s just released a VIP version. This future bass-y version of the tune comes in line with the announcement that he’s signed to Casablanca Records. Congrats!
Since first emerging last year, PRINCE FOX has become one of the industry’s hottest electronic dance music talents. He remixed 3lau’s “How You Love Me” [feat. Bright Lights], and it took off on Hype Machine, reaching #2 and receiving an “Honorable Mention” as part of a Wavo remix contest. He would soon be tapped for official remixes of Cazzette’s “Blind Heart,” a Beatport hit, and SNBRN’s “Raindrops” [feat. Kerli]. The latter went Top 5 on Beatport, #1 on Hype Machine, and racked up over 3 million Soundcloud plays. Meanwhile, his remix of Florence + the Machine’s “You Got The Love” is nearing 1 million Soundcloud plays.
Australian young gun Naderi is no stranger to the scene – the Sydney-based producer been making locked in the studio for years working behind-the-scenes engineering and mixing with huge fellow Aussie artists ranging from Flume to What So Not and Carmada. He burst onto the scene this year with official remixes of Daniel Johns’s “Aerial Love”, Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” and GRiZ & Talib Kweli’s single “For The Love” all garnering hundreds of thousands of plays and various press coverage including a feature from Billboard. His latest project takes on Canadian live-electronic act Keys N Krates’ most recent single “Save Me.” The Aussie talent manages to masterfully transform KNK’s hit into a more upbeat version while keeping Katy B’s vocals intact. Featuring bombastic synths and a delicate piano outro, the revamped track even further proves why he’s making the transition from behind-the-scenes collaborator to a true solo artist.
Look out for the remix release October 2nd via Dim Mak Records.
Fareoh is back with a serious heater for you. An interesting blend of melodic bass, piercing vocals from Sarah Mount, and some electric instrumentation make this track really pop. I’ve got a lot of respect for the amount of depth Fareoh was able to capture in the track. Bouncing out of genre constraints isn’t an easy feat but this dude has some serious production chops. Enjoy the track below.
